Wildcats begin playoffs with victory

The Littlefield Wildcats won the Bi- District trophy after their 44-36 win against Brownfield Thursday night on Lowrey Field in Lubbock. They were all expressing their joy at getting to advance in the playoffs. The Wildcats will play the winner of Eastland versus Brady, next week.
Littlefield won their fifth straight game with a 44-36 victory versus Brownfield, in the first round of the playoffs. The first quarter started off rather slowly, offensively, as both teams punted twice, and the game was scoreless at the end of the first quarter. The Wildcats pinned Brownfield back at their own twoyard-line, but that did not faze the Cubs’ offense.

NEW 4-H PROGRAM

A new 4-H Science program has just been initiated for Lamb County 4-H members who are interested in the subject of Soil Health. Students are using a biology microscope to examine soil samples from garden soil and from compost. They are also working with adults in building compost bins, following a design from Charlie Meier, NRCS-retired, with assistance from Dr. Bill Jones of Littlefield, who is affiliated with the SARA-SPADE Microbiology Project. Shown are Charlie Meier of Littlefield, and the first two 4-H students, Gavin and Cobey Sawyer of Amherst, who made the compost drum behind them. All 4-H members in Lamb County, who wish to participate in the new 4-H program, are invited to contact Dr. Bill Jones at 385-5208, to receive information.
